LIBRARY TALK

If you haven’t walked or driven by the Ripley Library lately, I invite you to do so. We have a creative “family”of scarecrows that welcome you to the library. I want to thank everyone that took the time to create a scarecrow—lots of imagination and work, and we think it looks great. I’m hoping this will become an annual event.

In keeping with the theme of fall, Halloween, and the days getting shorter, we hope that you will find time to come to our upcoming events. Oct. 10 is next Saturday, and it will be a full day (and night) of library activities. At 10 a.m., Shaheen Miro will return to the library, this time to discuss the differences between ghosts and spirits, and what a haunting might really be. This is a free program and open to everyone. From 12-3 p.m., Shaheen will be available for short 10 minute tarot card reading. He did this last time he was at the library and the time slots were quickly filled. There is a fee for this reading, but it is reduced from his normal charge. The sign-up sheet is at the Ripley library, so if you are interested, please call or stop in soon, 392-4871.

To round out the day, we will be having our resident Hollywood star David Gray tell historic local stories of murder, mayhem and maybe ghosts down in the Parker House amphitheater on Front Street from 7-8 p.m. This will be geared more for adults, so no young children please. We’ll have some light refreshments as well. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we will hold this storytelling at the library.
